Harvest From The School Garden This Summer!

You're Invited to Enjoy The School Garden This Summer!

Fresh tomatoes, basil, garlic, peppers, eggplant, mints, ground cherries, strawberries – July and August are the most productive months for the school garden. Help us enjoy the fruits of the students’ work!

Help Harvest

The School Garden committee needs help from local families to maintain the garden on summer weekends and during the last three weeks of August. It’s simple and easy to do: check the irrigation timer to make sure it is working, water the two large planters on Denton place and report any problems (such as damage to plants) that you observe to garden@ps372pta.org. (Most beds get water from the automated irrigation system or the rain). The summer watering schedule is organized with a Signup.com tool.

Ready To Volunteer?

You’ll need a key for the garden gate and a quick demonstration on how to use the rain barrels to water the Denton Place planters. To get both, come to the garden on the corner of 1st and Denton Pl (near the gym) after pickup or drop off during these days:

  • Thurs 6.15 AM after drop off (hosted by Liza)
  • Friday 6.16 AM after dropoff (hosted by Denise)
  • Mon 6.19 AM after dropoff (hosted by Liza)
  • Tuesday 6.20 AM after drop off (hosted by Ian)
  • Tuesday 6.20 PM after pickup (hosted by Ian)
  • Wed 6.21 PM after pickup (hosted by Lindsay)  ****updated Wed 6.14

Just show up! You can send an RSVP to garden@ps372pta.org so the group has your contact info, but it is not necessary to commit ahead of time. Come when you can. Thanks!
